Abstract
The evolution of the shipping industry (increased capacity and size of ships, power and self-propulsion), the increased productivity and rearrangement of spaces (port calls increased in number and frequency, changes in use of docks), the intensification of the use not only of stern main propellers (conventional or azimuthal) but also lateral bow and stern ones, are the leading causes of injury to the toe of the docks. Scouring processes due to manoeuvring actions can produce big consequences on ...
